Duchesne High School

Full STEAM Ahead

Duchesne Academy’s students and teachers had been actively pursuing STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) based classes, but met some challenges by not having a dedicated space where they could collaborate, share ideas, and access the tools that would allow them to explore and create. The school enlisted the help of APMA to design a modern STEAM classroom that is state-of-the-art while being respectful of the school’s historic building. APMA facilitated visioning sessions with students and instructors to identify their desired uses for the space – what they wanted to make, what tools they needed, and how the architecture could support it. Concepts were developed and presented at follow-up meetings with students and teachers and were later used in the school’s fundraising efforts. Once the funds were secured, APMA completed the design and documentation of the space.

Welcome Callahan

June 19, 2020

Callahan will be joining us for the summer as an interior design intern. She will be entering her senior year at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln pursuing her degree in Interior Design. Remember The Sims video game series? Well, that game provided an initial spark that ignited Callahan’s passion for interior design. When she’s not in the studio, Callahan can be found working out, cooking, dining at her favorite restaurant The Blatt, walking her dogs, or binge-watching Netflix.

Nicci is one of the interior design interns that will be joining us for the summer! She is an interior design student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln who will be entering her senior year come fall of 2020. When Nicci isn’t busy laying out spaces, she enjoys time outdoors whether it be running or walking the fields at her family farm with three Australian Shepherds in-toe!
